Armando Villarreal: 2013 Subaru WRX STI

Armando Villarreal has had quite a bit of success with his previous builds, but that doesn’t mean he's immune from challenges. The installation of the Vollkommen widebody kit on the 2013 Subaru WRX STI required tons of research, hours of Japanese YouTube videos and picking the brains of several body shop employees. Another challenge was the Tiffany blue wrap, which almost didn’t happen due to low stock.

Villarreal always had a singular goal: build a car that was sporty and functional yet aggressive enough to stand out. The 2013 Subaru WRX STI presented the best of both worlds; a car to take to autocross on the weekends and still be able to take the kids to school during the week. Villarreal has plans for a full motor build, turbo upgrade, roll cage install and additional suspension upgrades.
